Hi feenix, the waiting is almost cruel, it’s invading my sleep and making me so paranoid. Trying to stay in routine, walking the dog, dragging Henry hoover out and blitzing the house and trying to pass the time in a way that’s as normal as possible. I’m so glad I’m not alone in my thinking, sometimes you feel you’re going crazy. I hope all goes well for you on Monday 🤞
Sometimes finding humour in this awful situation brings me back from a dark place mentally, maybe I should stick to Sainsbury’s home delivery service in an effort to avoid the freezer aisle rampage!☺️ Xx
I know how you’re feeling ... my usual aches and pains all seem suspect but I try a bit of meditation or anything to distract my thoughts.
Things are out of our control and it’s scary but I am told that things will improve when we have results and a plan is made. I’m having MRI on Monday.
its the waiting and not knowing....
Welcome ladies, certainly busy here today! you will become accustomed to the Supermarket meltdown in time, it's along the lines of going on a rampage around the aisles of Asda ( Other Supermarkets are available) shoving everyone head first in to the nearest freezer!! 😜
As you can see we try and keep things light hearted when possible but are also a fountain of knowledge between us so can support , listen and hopefully answer any questions you have 😊 It takes a while to let it all sink it but it does and you will amaze yourself with how you will cope! Xx Jo
Oh remember that feeling, just wanted to be the other end of it all and it seemed a long way off. Am now 18 months post diagnosis and eagerly awaiting the start of the lawn bowls season, which was a major aim for me to get to this time last year.
Thanks Helena, it’s good to have a support network and express all these feelings and anxieties. If only I had a time machine x
Thanks Jill, it’s good to have a place to come where everyone is in the same boat and can truly understand what we are going through. As great as loved ones are, it’s different speaking to and sharing fears with those that truly understand. My GP has prescribed me with a short course of diazepam to ease anxiety which has really helped. Let’s hope those odds work out for me, cassie x
Welcome to the forum, not the place you would want to be in, but you will get loads of support on here from the wonderful ladies.
This is the worst time waiting for your treatment plan to be put in place, but once it is strangely enough it does get easier because you know exactly what is going to happen and when. The feeling that every little ache or pain is it spreading is normal and oh we can all relate to that on here, that is your anxiety taking over.
Come on here whenever you need to rant, rave whatever, and there will always be someone to help you because we know just what you are going through.
Also new to the forum. I was diagnosed last week with stage 3 bc, spread to lymph nodes. Now awaiting a ct scan to see if it has spread further. It’s the most terrifying and agonising experience I’ve ever dealt with. The not knowing and feeling like your life has been taken out of your control is horrendous. I now think that every pain, twinge and feeling slightly off means the cancer is eating me alive, it’s so difficult to cope with.
